Birthdays, weddings, baby showers and anniversaries are wonderful occasions that should be marked with special gifts, but it can be difficult to find something that is beautiful, unique and will be treasured for years to come. The Canadian Mint has a wonderful selection of gift coins to celebrate every occasion.
The perfect gift for the friend who has everything
Some people have everything and finding a special birthday gift for them can be frustrating and time-consuming. But instead of spending fruitless hours in the mall and ending up with a generic gift, buy them a coin gift set. These uncirculated coins are carefully selected, and supply is limited, making this a unique gift that will be appreciated for the thought that went into it. The 2019 Birthday Gift Set includes 5-cent, 10-cent, 25-cent and $2 coins as well as a specially struck $1 coin that is unique to the gift set. Each gift set can be personalized with best wishes, a meaningful message or a significant date.
Another great birthday gift is a 2019 Zodiac coin. There are currently six coins available in this series, Capricorn, Aquarius, Taurus, Pisces, Aries, Gemini and Cancer but ultimately there will be a full set of 12. Designed by artist Jori van der Linde, these coins feature an engraved outer ring of Roman numerals reminiscent of a classic watch or clock and an inner ring of 20 Swarovski® crystals surrounding a colourful zodiac-themed image. These are low mintage coins and each of the twelve designs will be limited to approximately 4000 coins worldwide. Or if the signs of the Zodiac do not appeal to you, you can always purchase a birthstone coin designed by Pandora Young.
A wedding gift that will be treasured forever
Weddings are joyous occasions that celebrate the love between two people and the union of two families. What better way to commemorate such a momentous occasion than with an engraved 99.99% pure silver Canadian mint coin with an intricately designed heart and arabesque style scroll pattern in pink gold plating designed by Canadian artist Sylvie Daigneault. This is a limited-edition gift set with only 10,000 coins available worldwide.
Love should be characterized by everlasting passion and compassion for each other and another spectacular wedding gift that celebrates the union of soulmates is a coin designed by Anna Bucciarelli. This sparkling expression of love can be turned into a pendant that can be worn close to the heart. The coin features a bouquet of roses that form a blooming heart. Each flower is selectively coloured to symbolize different feelings: yellow for friendship, red for romance, orange for enthusiasm and blue for tranquillity. The ribbon-shaped like an infinity symbol represents eternal love and is decorated with a Swarovski® crystal. The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all its collectable coins and this special coin comes with a serialized certificate.
The Perfect Keepsake for a New Baby
The birth of a baby is a momentous occasion in any family’s life and the best way to celebrate the event is with a beautiful coin that replicates the traditional cast of a baby’s feet. The coin is manufactured with a reverse proof finish that ensures the design of the baby’s feet stand out and have a mirror-like finish. The gift set comes with a specially designed certificate with a space to add your own personalized message. This gift will be treasured by the family for years and can be passed down from one generation to the next.
